    My Client Testimonials

    Octavia Samuels is second to none. She goes above and beyond. She thinks outside of the box and is committed to our goals. When I think of buying or selling real estate I think of Octavia. She is my preferred real estate agent! New agents and existing agents alike should strive to be like her. Octavia ensured everything possible was done including having the HOA make improvements to the exterior of the home. Octavia makes every effort to ensure she understands the people behind the property. Her ability to do just that is why I continue to refer and use her. Danielle is AMAZING. Her support and knowledge is an asset for every buyer and seller. ~ Kimberly Broomer of Keep Selling Property.
    Ms. Samuels has been great to work with and I look forward to working with her in the new year. She grasps my real estate past and helps me fund my future. ~ Peter Udeh Wilmington DE
    Octavia, didnt stop even when i was frustrated with the process and wanted to give up. She's a very diligent and hard working person. I appreciate her help and expertise in finding my home ~ Barbara Wesley New Castle, De
    Octavia Samuels was very conservative about sharing her knowledge of the Wilmington area so as not to steer my purchase (which I understand is of critical legal and social importance) while still sharing important details about homes and communities that were rooted in factual observation. Octavia was punctual at every showing. She shared requests for information and negotiations with the seller's agent usually within the hour of my request, and almost always on the same day, which was extremely helpful throughout the process of purchasing. Octavia noted fashions of renovation details, quality of workmanship, potential structural issues, and potential mechanical/electrical issues that helped estimate potential renovation costs at the showing-phase of the home-buying process, which was extremely helpful in the selection of my home. Octavia's experience was critical in negotiating credits and home-improvements before closing. I was bear-ish for fear of losing the property in a seller's market. She was bull-ish and she was right; almost all of the major issues noted by the home inspector were fixed and/or credited, which is more than what I would have bargained for. Octavia Samuels worked in communicating with me and sellers, organizing and sending documents, other clerical duties, and even some showings after business hours, which was critical due to my own working situation. She was flexible and considerate. She helped make home-buying fun with her glowing personality while remaining professional throughout. ~ Matt McPherson, Wilmington

    As we previously stated, we wanted to see a certain property, so we stopped by the property, seen the listing agent business card and pamphlet(OCTAVIA SAMUELS). So we called her and she ask what we were approved for. At first we thought wow, we just want to see a property not buy. So we talked to OCTAVIA SAMUELS afew times on the phone and started building a relationship. OCTAVIA earned our trust, she was knowledgeable, forthcoming, and very respectful. OCTAVIA didn't hide anything from us. OCTAVIA made sure we were going in the right direction at all times. With the mortgage consultant, appraiser and closing attorney. OCTAVIA SAMUELS is a outstanding agent. In closing OCTAVIA was going a much needed vacation and was not going to be available for our closing. But my husband said we started with OCTAVIA and we're gonna finish with OCTAVIA. So after coming off of vacation our agent OCTAVIA SAMUELS was there for us. Thank you "Ms. OCTAVIA SAMUELS" for a beautiful journey, job well done. #ouragentrocks ~ The MINTERS

    Octavia was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. She's a pleasure to be around, I am more than pleased with her service. I recommend her to everyone ~ Lamar Aikens, Wilmington de
    I felt that Octavia is a good person, she's easy to work with and shows great concern when helping people find a good home. I thought I knew what to look for in buying my home, but l found there's a lot more to it. I was amazed with how much she knew about the process, when there was a question asked that she may not have been sure of, she made it a point to get the right answers. In finding the house l now call HOME, there were ups and downs an at times even frustrations when l was over bided. However, Octavia stade fast an patience the whole way through. This was a long draw out process, it just so happened, the day before her vacation we viewed a house, it was at 2 Lyons Ave. She made arrangements with her coworker to look out for me while she was away, thay did just that. I was informed a day later my bib had been axcepted, I am so grateful for co-workers hehp, and every one at Century 21. I had certain things in mind I wanted in a house that weren't in a few homes l bided on, like a garage or finished basement, but through diligence on Octavia's part l found just the right house. It's a great feeling. A SPECIAL THANKS to Octavia Samuels for helping to make this a reality. ~ Jeffrey smith NweCastle DE
    Mrs Samuels made a traumatic transition for both me and my younger brother George bearable. After my husband died in 2014, it was obvious I could no longer maintain the property on my own. Based on Mrs Samuels recommendations, the house sold for the asking price in four days. Now I am settled in my new home and my brother misses Miss O. I will always recommend her services without reservations! ~ Ann Bond, Camden DE and Philadelphia
    Thank you for taking over the listing of my previous home located at 15 E Hawthorne Dr, Newark, DE. The noticeable difference was the manner in which the property was marketed. The professional photographs were in direct contrast to the repeated poor pictures quality that frustrated me greatly and attracted very few prospects during the first listing agreement. Once the professional photographs were published, the showings dramatically increased. To the point I had to decline showings after the offer contract was signed off on. Also a noticeable difference in the way the property was described added to the increase of interest in the property. That too was very disappointing and frustrating to me, I even tried to assist with the description of the home and amenities (and photographs). You enlightened me with the ¿showing app¿, the various functions to keep up with the appointments, and the ability to formulate reports. When the offer was presented, you paid close attention to details and offered guidance/suggestions during the negotiation of the contract. There was a stressful time after the home inspections regarding an alleged structural issue that would have cost thousands of dollars. With your assistance, we had a Structural Engineer inspect the home, no defects were found and the cost of ¿repairs¿ were reduced to zero. You were present from start to finish, via texts, emails and telephone calls with clear and concise communication. I wasn¿t left wondering if I was alone in this process anymore. Many, many thanks to you. I have and will continue to do so, recommend you to others for their real estate needs. ~ L Anderson
    Great to work with I am an investor and will continue to use her over and over again ~ Daniel Delaware
    I really can't say enough about my experience with Octavia. She is a wonderful realtor! She is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. During the process of purchasing my first home, she was attentive and responsive to my needs. As a new homebuyer, I had no idea what I was looking for. She listened to my wish list and sent me daily listings that matched my preferences. You can only imagine the countless houses I requested to see. She was always patient and informative. When it was time to sell my home, I knew that she was the best realtor for the job. The homebuying/selling process can be long and stressful. She met with me several times to determine the best marketing strategy for my home. It was executed very effectively. You want someone who is honest and trustworthy. That's Octavia. What I appreciate most, is that she does not hesitate to advocate for her client. After all we've been through, I consider her family! ~ Danyell, Newark, DE
    She is a very helpful and responsible worker ~ U
    Octavia was a joy to work with. Before hiring Octavia, I had another realtor who just didn't get it - they didn't understand my needs or display real expertise in helping me to sell my home. From the onset of meeting Octavia, her expertise and professionalism was evident. She was personable. focused, clear, confident and knowledgeable. With her help, we sold our home in less than 21 days for the full asking price, while with the previous realtor it sat un-viewed and on the market for 30 days. If you are selling your home, I highly recommend Octavia and I recommend that you call her. She will do her due diligence, leverage her network, market your home innovatively and get your home sold. ~ D. Harmon, Newark, DE
    Really help me through the process very patient and make sure nothing fall between the cracks she when above and beyond. ~ Ratsami Johnson
    You will not be disappointed.. Octavia will assist you in all your real estate needs. ~ Missy Ross, Orangeburg, South Carolina

    Thank you for being a good friend to me and my wife Mrs Octave a Samuels ~ Lawrence/Sandra McGuire Newcastle DE
    Octavia was absolutely amazing! Very informative, patient, compassionate, and caring. I would have not been able to get through this process without her assistance. She listened to me, knew what I was looking for, and was very patient with me, as I am a new, first time home owner. My friend had referred her to me a few years ago when she had purchased her new home, and had nothing but wonderful things to say about Ms. Octavia. In the future, when anyone I come in contact needs a realtor, hands down, Octavia will be my first and only choice. Excellent, awesome, the bomb.com!!! ~ Nyeesha Joy Newark
    Same as comment above. Thank you ~ Shawana Layne.. Middletown
    Octavia went above and beyond, and I very much appreciate it. If I need to sell, buy , or know someone who is looking she would be first choice anytime. ~ Dante Grace Wilmington Delaware
    My homebuying experience with Octavia Samuels and Century 21 was a great one overall. She came highly recommended as did the rest of the team and she did not disappoint. Octavia kept me positive at all times, especially during some extremely stressful points in the process. I have already recommended her to several others that are in the market to buy a home and will continue to do so! ~ Crystal Collins, Bear, DE
    Octavia was recommended to me by a friend and I was informed that she was excellent and she was. I wasn't very knowledgeable about buying a home but Octavia helped me every step of the way. She had to explain a lot of the material to me and treated me with respect the entire step of the way and I greatly appreciated that. ~ Kerone and Tevin, new Castle de
    Again, Octavia was the best realtor to work with during this journey of mine. There's not one bad thing I can say about Octavia because she was just that great!!! I am a first time home buyer and she made the experience worth wild. I would recommend her to others because she's just great at what she does and took her time to explain things which I didn't know. What stood out the most was how knowledgeable Octavia is about homes. ~ Jenelle C. Dennis Octavia
    Octavia is the absolute best at what she does. She was never pushy and never tried to sell me anything. We could look at several properties and even the same property several times and Octavia was always patient and helpful. Thank you Octavia. ~ Farid Abumohor Newark, DE
    I can say with all honesty that Ms. Samuels is the best broker that I have had the pleasure of working with. From beginning to end Octavia was always at the top of her game and I always felt like she had my best intrest at heart. Guiding me through the entire process with as many hurdles that came along Octavia jumped over them like she was in the Olympics. Truly an asset to century 21 and I look forward to working with Ms. Samuels in the future. ~ natascha new castle
    Octavia Samuels was a great help, showed professionalism and knowledge throughout the selling process of my house! I would only call her for all my real estate needs! I recommend Octavia 100% without any doubt! I live out of state and she even helped me find reliable and affordable contractors to make the repairs needed after the inspection. I didn't even need to go to DE for the closing, she took care of everything and represented me, I did not even think twice to give her a power of attorney! Thank you Octavia for your great services! ~ Marcela Acevedo Houston, TX
    Octavia is the BEST agent I have ever worked with. She is understanding!!!! Octavia is the only agent my family will EVER use. She has sold many properties for me in the past and she will moving forward. I LOVE OCTAVIA!!!!!! Every agent she be just like her. ~ Keep Selling Property LLC
